New London , CT

The seaport of New London was established in 1646. The town has a long maritime history as a ship building center and very profitable trade center. New London is located on the western side of the Thames River with its smaller sister port of Groton on the eastern side.

Having emerged as a thriving whaling port that rivaled even New Bedford, MA, during the 19th century, New London is the largest and busiest commercial port in eastern Connecticut. It is also an important harbor of refuge, home to major U.S. Navy and Coast Guard facilities and in recent times a leading recreational yachting center with excellent marinas, reliable restaurants and adequate provisioning.
